Finally, the KCEE trained and directed four teachers in the implementation of a pilot program, "Choices and Changes," in the Paducah City School system. The program, aimed at elementary and secondary students at risk of leaving school before graduation, stresses the development of self-esteem, motivation, and appreciation for the value of education. The Waterfield Center for Business and Governmental Research, directed by Dr. Fred Miller, Associate Professor of Marketing, sponsored seven Research and Teaching Issues Seminars. Through these seminars, faculty participants were exposed to contemporary research methodologies as they focused on strategies to enhance classroom performance. The seminars also attempted to increase faculty awareness of new research and teaching opportunities. The College hosted ten guest speakers in the 1992 Executives—on-Campus program. These professionals from the business and government sectors addressed students in 18 classes in business law, criminal justice, finance, legal studies, management, marketing, and office systems. The Department of Political Science, Criminal Justice, and Legal Studies awarded ten Harry Lee Waterfield memorial scholarships, each in the amount of $1,200, to outstanding students in public affairs.

The Epsilon Nu chapter is seeking its fifth consecutive Superior Chapter designation, an honor bestowed only on the very best chapters in the nation. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, sponsored by the Department of Accounting and Beta Alpha Psi, assisted 328 elderly and student taxpayers in 1992. Mr. Donald Baker, President of the Institute of Management Accountants, was honored as the Epsilon Nu chapter's Outstanding Alumnus for 1991-92. Currently serving as Vice President and Controller for the Southwire Corporation in Carrollton, Georgia, Mr. Baker has also been nominated by Epsilon Nu for the national Beta Alpha Psi Outstanding Alumnus Award. Mr. Baker's status as a leader in the accounting profession makes him an excellent - candidate for this award. He taught at Murray State from 1969-71 and currently serves on the Dean's Advisory Council.
